FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Germany's largest airline Deutsche Lufthansa AG (LHAG.DE: Quote) said on Thursday it has agreed with pilots' union Vereinigung Cockpit (VC) to hold further talks over pay and benefits.

The union, which represents most of Lufthansa's 5,400 pilots, staged a three-day strike last week - the longest walkout in the airline's history - to underline their demands over a retirement scheme.
